Saving a Nisus file as a csv file to import into Filemaker

Post by dumiya »

I search high and low through the "Save As" windows and could not see the option to save as .csv.
I would like to avoid having to paste into Excel and save as .csv

G’day, dumiya et al

Try saving the file as Plain Text, with .txt file extension. Then, in the Finder, change the .txt extension to .csv. Numbers opens such a file as a spreadsheet table in the manner you would expect.

Adrian's suggestion to set the file format to Plain Text in the save dialog is the best option. At that point you use any file name extension you'd like, including .csv, without going to the Finder. OSX might warn you that it's non-standard and ask for a confirmation, but it's not too troublesome.
